Why Medical Terminology is Essential Knowledge for Unit Secretaries

As a Unit Secretary in a healthcare setting, you may wonder if knowing medical terminology is necessary. Simply put, the answer is yes. Medical terminology is the language healthcare professionals use to communicate patient information accurately and precisely. It can be the difference between life and death for a patient, so Unit Secretaries must have a solid understanding of basic medical terminology. 

Not only will it help you better understand and communicate with other healthcare professionals, but it will also enable you to assist patients more effectively. While it may seem overwhelming initially, learning medical terminology is essential to being a competent Unit Secretary and an important step toward providing exceptional patient care.
